the machine knew
only one thing —

replicate, reproduce,
regurgitate

this monster in
San Francisco was
multiplying its
stolen and coded
content and making
artificial and
plagiarized
babies —

drones,
nukes,
flukes

they say it’s
only a matter
of time when the
metallic Mr. Hyde
will assassinate
its maker,
Dr. Jekyll

when the algorithmic
Frankenstein will go
rogue to torture us
with tapestries

insiders say this
is only the tip
of the iceberg,
warning —

wait until they get
their metal fingers
on the nuclear
button
